We love Dunedin. The natural beauty of the Otago Peninsula, the dynamic life of this university town, and the unexpected profusion of great coffee shops make this one of our favourite stops in New Zealand.

The first café we visit has us beaming like a dog wagging with two tails. That’s right; the coffee shop is called Dog With Two Tails. A cosy and eclectic café by day and a popular music venue and bar in the evenings, there’s awesome brunch fare (we had the Green Eggs and Ham, and the Bangers and Beans; both served with sourdough bread) and even Kiwi craft beer.

We understand Dog with Two Tails is a family run business, and it shows in the homey feel of the space. But not stuffy suburban homey but rather a place where artists, musicians, and yes, even hippies, can feel at home. The chalkboard on the wall announces upcoming gigs; a miniature train track winds its way around the ceiling; there are books and there is poetry in the air somehow.

Our coffees arrive with a friendly smile. The barista asks us where we are from and where we are heading to next. Where’s next? For the next half hour or so, we’re just happy to be here. Content and complete.

達尼丁是我們在紐西蘭南島度蜜月的其中一站,
除了有奧塔哥半島的大自然風光外,
這座著名的大學城里也有不少特色咖啡館。
Dog with Two Tails這家名字趣致的咖啡館就是我們所到訪的其中一家。
這家家族企業的咖啡館,有著別具一格的用色和裝潢,
寬敞的空間,四周的刷得紅彤彤的墻壁,
再配上有質感的木質家具和皮沙發,非常的吸引人。
除了佈置和裝潢讓人不禁眼前一亮外,
這的咖啡和食物也不遑多讓。
香濃的咖啡和用心製作的美食,讓人念念不忘。

這家白天是咖啡館的Dog with Two Tails,
據說晚間還會搖身一變,化身成流行音樂的表演場地。
所以這的顧客群除了像我們一般來用餐的食客外,
也聚集了不少當地許多藝術家、音樂家甚至是嬉皮士。
而這的咖啡師則猶如其他紐西蘭人一般的友善親切。
當我去詢問能否在店裡拍些照片時,
忙碌的他不僅大方的說沒問題,
還特地的把所有的燈都打開,
讓我可以好好的拍個夠本,叫人怎能不喜歡上這里?
